Living Lightly

Living Lightly: Mindful Consuming

Are you curious about the impact of your choices, and how you might live a little lighter? In this 6 week course, together we will look at how we as earthlings of the 21st century may have more options with regards to our (carbon) footprint than we realise. In a friendly, curious, and mindful way we will explore themes like energy and travel, food and stuff, but also resilience, (self-)compassion, lobbying and activism. No blame and shame, but a safe space to see with clear eyes where we can exercise our freedom of choice and how we can align to our own deepest values in our everyday life.

Each session will include some mindfulness meditation and informational elements, as well as space for our own experience and reflections, in a supportive and non-judgmental context with experienced facilitators who are nonetheless in the same boat and wrestling with the same questions. 

Pam Candea has been working to promote sustainable and resilient society actively since returning to a cherished ambition after a long career in the commercial world in 2007. She now works with community, public sector, and commercial organisations to help bring about change to tackle dangerous climate change.

Kristine Mackenzie has been a Mindfulness Association tutor since soon after its inception, and is a trained facilitator in the Work That Reconnects. She is interested in reconnecting with both our inner world and the world around us: the awareness of being an inextricable part of this one wild and precious earth and how we can be good ancestors to those who are to come.

For whom: This workshop is open to anyone, and no specific life-style or prior knowledge is required.

Dates and times: This course will run on 6 Tuesday evenings 7, 14, 21 and 28 September and 5 and 12 October, 7-9pm on zoom.

Cost: €100
